Counting, sorting, feeling, discussing buttons and colours.
It started with this watercolour palette.
I put numbers 1 to 6 in the palette and Big Seed had to put the right number of buttons in.
Then we sorted them by colour...
however, this wasn't just a box of plastic buttons from ELC, these had different tones, hues, etc
There was much discussion about each one.
Turquoise can go with the blues... is that green or yellow?
I got our square mosaic puzzle... I bought it from here.
I love it because it has so many varieties of shades.
We sorted those into our coloured picnic cups ( from Asda).
You can always use paint chart cards from your DIY store, and cut them up.
Then we emptied the cups by colour and put them back in the frame.
I love his rainbow socks matching the rainbow puzzle!
